That's a funny definition of average. When I looked there was one at over £500 (with bids!) and one at £500 (without bids), and then several for under that price. There are copies going on sale on Monday, so everyone has a chance to buy one then.

Cheers,
Marcus

Well, I saw quite a few at £500, quite a few at around £650 and then a few down at £350. Soooooo, £500 average....

EDIT: Looking back again, the £600+ ones seem to have vanished, still brings the average to about £350-£400. Which is still a fucking heavy mark up. Point is, those copies tomorrow are still going to sell out pretty quickly, there's going to be quite a lot of people who due to work or other commitments etc won't be able to get on, much like last time. And the only way they are going to be able to get a copy, is eBay, where the already hefty price is more than doubled.

So no, not everyone is going to get a chance to get them, especially when a lot of people are scooping up multiple copies for the sole purpose of reselling them on eBay for a huge profit.

Maybe the demand was not all that high after all considering it’s still available... I feel somewhat sorry about any poor sods that might have picked it up on eBay.

Anyways, I caved in and ordered myself a christmas present.

Damn it. I knew I should have invested in a few copies - I could have made a decent profit!

I cannot understand why somebody would pay £500 pounds on Ebay for this. WTF!! Talk about one born every minute, more like ten. Itís still on sale direct from Black Library for £150. Which also means itís not been that popular that it sells out in minutes.

The worst of it is I am on the east coast and woke up at 0530 to get my paws on it, how sad is that? BL must have failed to mention that only a handful of copies actually sold on Friday, so the demand was indeed off the mark. Feel real bad for the dude that paid $8 hundo on ebay.
